These valves include a thread-in type, which comes in sizes from 5/16 to 7/16 inches, and a slip-in type in sizes from 1/8 to 3/8 inches. They are small enough to wipe out external leak points found with line-mounted check valves. Built for working with hydraulic fluid, they are made to go into manifolds, subplates, flanges and integrated hydraulic valve systems. Made out of steel, they provide positive fluid shutoff with hardened lapped discs and seats. Both types come with a sealing O-ring. Inserta Products Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-603

NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
